Embroker expands to Chicago

Tech-driven commercial broker Embroker is opening an office in Chicago and is looking to hire 10 more people over the next year. To be exact, in 104 S. Michigan Ave, which is a 7-minute walk from CNA and a 9-minute walk from Aon (talent wars?). Recall: Embroker has offices in San Fran and Boston, and recently secured $12.2 million in a Series A funding round. Speaking of Aon, the company, in partnership with Intact Insurance, is offering personal ridesharing insurance policies designed specifically for Ontario Uber drivers. Think: Uber drivers can upload a photo of their license via mobile, or enter their details via web, to get a quote.
